Welcome in the winter with rarely-heard seasonal songs and tunes from cold Celtic lands and beyond. This festive family-friendly matinee concert features the vocal group Zambra, Community Music School's Celtic Teen Band, and special guests from the Community Music School faculty, Shelley Phillips (harp and winds) and Deby Benton Grosjean (fiddle).

In Community Music School's Celtic Teen Band, youth ages 13-17 learn to play in ensemble, developing musicianship, flexibility and musical creativity. The band meets with artistic director Shelley Phillips to arrange music from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, Scandinavia and more. Instruments include fiddle, flute, tin whistle, cello, bass, guitar, Celtic harp, accordion and percussion.

Multi-instrumentalist and 2017 Santa Cruz County Artist of the Year Shelley Phillips performs and teaches music internationally. She is an artist on the Gourd music label and director of Community Music School of Santa Cruz.

Violinist Deby Benton Grosjean is a highly sought-after performer and instructor. As a Celtic fiddler she combines the precision of classical technique with the freedom of traditional music.
